Would the fact that the human body is 80% water come into play? Most new wood can not burn, unless it has been allowed to dry for over a year. That's because it's still too wet. Add to that the fact that some of the concentration camps were built on re-claimed swamp land - one can not dig deeper than 8-10 inches without groundwater...

The Switchtpwer 0r Saved by their Son was directed by Anthony O'Sullivan in 1913. Arogant tramps, a railroad man , counterfeiters, detectives and a boy to the rescue. How could you ask for more in about 10 minutes The switchman is played, by the way, by henry B Warthall who later starred in Birth of an Nation.
